It can be done but you need high ceilings or they will be very close together.

The clearances are generall too tight for most people's liking. Standard ceiling height combined with comfortable clearance between the sleeper and the bed/ceiling above usually limits the choice to 2 beds.

But, if the sleepers do not mind (or have no choice) cramped space, then you can fit 3 beds in.

In most modern houses the ceiling is too low to accommodate three levels of bunk bed with reasonable headroom for all occupants.

With a 2 bed you usually have a foot clearance under the lower bunk to put all your toys. Most houses at that time had an 8 foot ceiling. Do the math. If the bottom mattress was 6" off the ground and mattress is a 1 foot thick and you are 2 feet thick and you need some head room to get out so add another foot, that is 4"6" before the next mattress and add 1 foot for mattress is 5'6"+2.5feet=8 feet The little guy sleeps on top. This ain't the army.

Because the third bed would be way too close to the ceiling.

3 beds would stack too high, the highest elevated bed would have the person literally kissing the ceiling. So it was convenient to stop at the number 2 from how high they top bunk is installed.
